Liam Dutton, Weatherman


Liam Dutton is Channel 4 News' Weather Presenter and has 19 years of live broadcasting experience, on TV, radio and online, to millions of people. Liam has just written a children's non-fiction weather book called Weather, Camera, Action!: A Meteorologist's Guide to the Sky  for 7-11 year olds, which was released on 29th September 2022.


Previously, he worked for nine years as a Broadcast Meteorologist at the BBC Weather Centre in London, where he broadcast regionally, nationally and internationally.


Liam's adaptable style of presentation means that he broadcast across many BBC channels, including BBC One, as well as reading the Shipping Forecast on BBC Radio 4.


Liam is a fully qualified meteorologist, having completed the Met Office's IFC forecaster course. His in-depth knowledge of weather allows him to take complex ideas and communicate them in an engaging way that is accessible to all.


In September 2015, Liam became an overnight global sensation after saying Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - a village in north west Wales - in his evening weather forecast.


His flawless pronunciation of the 58-letter place name - the longest in Europe - garnered a total of more than 20 million views on YouTube and Facebook within a week and dominated the media around the world.


Liam was interviewed by Wales Online, BBC Radio 5 Live, Canadian breakfast television and beyond, as well as featuring in Time magazine, the New York Times, MTV and Perez Hilton.


He was praised by Catherine Zeta Jones, and TV anchors around the world were so impressed by his mind-blowing effort that they tried to outdo him, but with little success.
